JAGUARS DEFENSIVE END CALAIS CAMPBELL KICKS OFF “SEASON OF GIVING” NEW INITIATIVE TO RAISE MONEY FOR SPOTLIGHTED CHARITIES TIED TO PERFORMANCE ON FIELD AND FAN SUPPORT
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jaguars first-team All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl DE Calais Campbell and his CRC Foundation announced his new charitable initiative for the 2019-20 NFL season, Calais’ Season of Giving, a fundraising campaign based off of Calais’ on the field performance with an opportunity for fans to play along.
For each month during the 2019-20 season, Calais has chosen a charity to donate up to $20,000 with dollar amount corresponding to:
Jaguars win: $1,000
Half of Sack: $2500
Tackle for Loss: $2,000
Blocked Kick/Turnover: $10,000
Fans and corporate sponsors are encouraged to play along by donating a dollar amount for each Calais Campbell sack this season through https://pledgeit.org/calais.
A different charity will be highlighted each month, with each charity being the recipient of Calais’ and fans donation for four games.
September—Feeding Northeast Florida
October—Clara White Mission
November—Wounded Warrior Project
December—United Way, focused on Mental Health Awareness and Education
January and the playoffs will focus on a social justice initiative.
“I wanted to use my platform to bring attention and funds to some very deserving causes both in Jacksonville and nationally,” said Calais Campbell. “Season of Giving gives me an opportunity to do both. I’m asking Jags fans to join me in raising money by pledging a dollar amount for each sack I have this season, with every dollar raised going directly back to different charities—Feeding Northeast, Clara White Mission, Wounded Warrior Project and United Way, specifically their work with mental health awareness. When we’re on our playoff run in January, I’ll be picking a social justice cause so Season of Giving can continue into the post-season. I’m already pretty fired up to perform my best each time I’m on the field, but having the fans and the community behind me provides the extra incentive to help the Jags win and dominate on Sundays. We’re all in this together and can really make a difference in this community if we join forces.”
